Plaster & Gold
Made out of high quality plaster (with resin) and ceramic pieces that have gold luster. A study on “emptiness”. Elysia is interested in exploring a space. While working on the inside of the piece on the wheel, she explores that space, which is the negative space of the piece. The emptiness. The hollow. By working on that negative space she discovers a sensation of fullness! What is empty fills up with this warm emotion and feels whole. The pieces are then immersed into the plaster to eliminate the outside and create focus on this “space”. It is a work in progress about how architecture and sculpture can merge, using each other’s space.
